Today is the first day of spring. That is what the calendar tells us. But it is still cold and tomorrow, we are expecting yet another snow storm – really! There were 4 of them over the last 3 weeks. New York City was mostly spared, it rained and sleeted here more than it snowed.
Flowers, gardeners and bees were not deterred. We did some spring cleaning, pruned most of the roses and took care of the bees. The bees resumed their house cleaning and began to collect fresh pollen for the next generation.
We will see what tomorrow brings. There is no question, winter will be over at some point.
This time, we did get snow and quite a bit, too. However, it all melted away in the course of the next day.
